How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

By

Here’s a good story about how an “accident” with a recipe turned out really well. In the 1930’s, Ruth Wakefield was experimenting with a new recipe for a chocolate dessert. When she tried to make it, she saw that she had “failed” when the chocolate chunks wouldn’t melt in the batter.

Of course, today, we know that her failed experiment led to the most popular cookie in the world — the chocolote chip cookie.

The story continues… Ruth Wakefield owned and operated the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. She served her accidently recipe and it became an instant hit at the Inn. She later sold the chocolate mixture to Nestle, who now owns the Toll House trademark.

I’m no Ruth Wakefield, but I do have a chocolate chip recipe to share with you. These cookies are crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle. Yummy!!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
  2. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 tsp baking powder
  9. 1 tsp baking soda
  10. 1 1/2 twelve-ounce bags semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl; mix together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. With your fingers, place golf ball-sized dough portions about two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Or you can use the silicon sheet like you see in the picture. I used a red colored silicon sheet.
  3. Bake for 9-10 minutes or just until edges are light brown. This will make around 30 cookies.
  4. Serve warm with milk! Enjoy!
